Hands forming a heart

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. - 1 John 4:8

The Love favorite month of all! I get so excited every time February 1st hits. I become an annoying little Valentine's Cupid, spreading my joy for this holiday every where I go. I go so far as to decorate my workplace, go above and beyond to get family members and friends Valentine's goodies.

For the average individual, this holiday, and time of year in general is despised. People view it as a marketing scheme to monopolize cards and chocolate. It is viewed as a time of year to make those who have no special someone miserable, and those who do go into a panic spiral trying to go above and beyond to appease their significant other.

I have always viewed this time of year a little differently. I choose to spread love to all. As the body of Christ, that is what we are called to do. "He that loveth not knoweth no God; for God is love." To fall madly in love with God is to know God, and to know God is to love one another. Take this opportunity to wholeheartedly commit your life to God. Fall scandalously in love with Him, and let Him work through you to spread His love to those who are in need. The world is broken and lost, and they need an example of something to hope in. We are called to be just that. We are called to love.

You have never really lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

December. The last month of the year that seems to pass like a whirlwind. People are running around at break neck speed to find the perfect gift in hopes of receiving the perfect gift in return. It is also the time of year we are encouraged more than any other time to give to those less fortunate. We become explicitly aware of those who are unable to celebrate the holidays with their family, or purchase gifts to place under the tree, or may not even able to purchase a tree. The world monopolizes this time of year to promote their product/business for self gratification.

But what have we, the People of God done to encourage and bring light and hope to others during this season. Have we followed suit of the world's agenda with regard to "giving to others"? Have we misconstrued the idea of "passing it forward"? No, we may not directly receive kickbacks for our "acts of generosity", but how do we react? Do we take this opportunity to exploit the less fortunate by posting our good deeds on various facets of social media for all of our "friends" and family to see? Do churches volunteer to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, or house the homeless so they can brag on church websites and Facebook pages to show up their "brother" at another church? When did acts of generosity actually become acts of self gratification?

I am not against any of these things. We as the People of God are called to give, feed, clothe, and house. But who cares if no one else knows about it? When God robed himself in flesh and came to this world, He came as the lowliest of low, FOR the lowliest of low. There were no parades, parties, or even masses of people following to see this precious baby in a manger. So why don't we follow Jesus' example as instructed in His Word? I challenge you all to give generously this year, but without the hype of recognition. Give selflessly. Give anonymously. Share the gift of Christ's love genuinely.

Gentle as a lamb

Gentleness: A character trait. A fruit of the spirit. Something that is not always easy to exhibit.

About three years ago, my dear grandmother passed away. While her death came peacefully to our family, it was not easy to move past. My grandmother was a soft spoken gem who prayed for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren continuously. During my time with her, I never knew her to be quick to anger, but she demonstrated a firm hand over her children and grandchildren, keeping them close to God. When she passed away, one thing that constantly came to mind was her meek, quiet, and GENTLE spirit. I began praying to God to instill in me that same spirit, and I pray that prayer even today.

To be gentle does not necessarily mean you are spineless and stand idly by while the world passes you by. To be gentle means to have a STRONG hand with a SOFT touch. It means to be tender and compassionate to others’ weaknesses and limitations, understanding we all have weaknesses and limitations. A gentle person always speaks truth, even if it be a painful truth, but does so guarding his/her tone so that the truth may be well received.

I challenge you all to demonstrate gentleness to others. Do not be quick to anger with your peers or family. I know it is not an easy feat, but in striving to do so, we are practicing the fruit of the spirit.

"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, GENTLENESS, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Against such there is NO law."

Galations 5:22-23
